I did the rounds in Buford today.
Ross and Marshall's: nothing notable. One or two RID Starscreams each, a couple old DOTM knicknacks, and I think I saw one RID Knock Out.
TRU near MOGA: Someone else got there RIGHT before me and snagged the last First Edition Bulkhead, as well as a FE Starscream. Was that any of you guys? Anyway, all that was left was a ton, and I mean a TON, of DOTM deluxes. They had filled up most of the pegs and were taking up the top shelf space, with at least 3 more cases on top of the shelf waiting to be put out. 8 Masterpiece Thundercrackers, a few Optimus Maximii, and maybe 2 representatives each of Generations FOC and Prime waves 1, plus a bunch of RID Starscreams. Oh, and those Bot Shots 5-packs. There was one new thing, though, and that was the FOC minibot two-packs. I saw both Frenzy/Ratbat and Rumble/Ravage in multiples. No FOC Voyagers, though.
Target: A few FOC Combaticons and a lot of Cyberverse and Bot Shots.
TJ Maxx: Same story as Ross and Marshall's. I noticed at these three locations a lot of M.A.R.S. sets I haven't seen at the bigger retailers, like the dinosaurs and the armor bots. Anybody know anything more about these? They're kinda nifty looking.
Wal Mart: Once again, nothing to see here.
I also stopped by the Lawrenceville Wal Mart on L'ville Suwannee west of I-85 because it's near my route, nothing there either.
At all locations, I found they were just about clean out of deluxes after Christmas, but had a bunch of Cyberverse and Bot Shots stuff, and the only voyagers to be found were Starscreams.
Wal Mart is heavily discounting most of their Prime stuff. I believe it was 50% off all Legions, Commanders, and Deluxes. Good time to snag that missing figure for your collection or build your Legion Vehicon army.
The other day, I picked up a Voyager Starscream for $13 after tax at the Ross by the Lawrenceville Target. The corresponding Marshall's had nothing new, although I saw a couple Generations Wheeljacks for $8 that I considered getting (ultimately passed). I might have the two stores backwards as far as what I found where, but it doesn't really matter, it's a five minute walk from one to the other.
I am currently missing only three figures from my complete Prime RID collection: Skyquake, Shadow Strike Bumblebee, and Rumble. Skyquake hasn't been spotted yet, Shadow Bee I'll get if I can find one at a TJ Rossall's, and Rumble I'll take at any price (well, $15 or less). PLEASE GIVE ME A HEADS-UP IF YOU FIND A RUMBLE IN THE GWINNETT COUNTY AREA. I'll head out to Pleasant Hill tomorrow to give that area a look, but it's generally not been very good for finds. Thank you, all.
